Leadtime’s vary depending on the number of finished cattle and butcher dates available. We only want to put the highest quality beef in your freezer. This means we only butcher animals show outward signs of being ready, meaning we have a limited number of quarters and sides available per year.
Our current lead times verify depending on the time of year, on average we range five-six months ahead. Book ahead to avoid disappointment, especially during the peak summer season that fills up first.

A quarter of beef will easily fit into a 5-7 cubic foot chest freezer; a half beef needs about 8-10 cubic feet. Buying in bulk gives you the convenience of having a great variety of meat on hand whenever you need it. For most families, a side of beef will last you around a year and will fill about half of the volume of an average chest freezer.
